With something new to see and learn in every corner, U.S is definitely an explorer’s haven. Apart from the famous ones, there are many more corners of the country that are mind-blowing. So make your trip planning easy, here is a list of 10 of the most colourful places in the U.S:-
1) Ulster County, New York
Fall is a season that people look forward to, for the entire air around changes into different shades of pleasantness. Ulster County is one such place during fall. You can see the transformation of the leaves turn into a prominent constituent of the beautiful painting that this county changes into. The mix of yellows and blues of the sky is just a perfect match to the reds and the greens of the ground.
2) Bryce Canyon, Utah
You might think that including a canyon with its dull browns in our list of 10 of the most colourful places in the U.S might just be a mistake. But, you are sure to change your opinion once you do get here. We call it colourful because this canyon boasts of different shades of natural reds, crèmes and browns in the shape of rocks and hoodoos. That is not it, what adds to the entire ambience is the wild greens that cover the highs and lows of this marvellous canyon.
3) Grand Spring, Yellowstone National Park
Avoiding the colour play in the word itself and also keeping aside the beautiful hues of the rocks that are found here, let us look at the most colourful feature of this national park. There is a spring here that has this prismatic effect and takes the colour of a rainbow, thanks to the large number of heat loving bacteria that are found inside it.
Vermont is literally a city tucked in a large blanket which has different colours. The shades are a gift of the fact that 75% of Vermont is covered with forests and greens. It is also one of the most famous getaways in the U.S for a quite weekend in the arms of nature while enjoying its urban side to the fullest. Vermont is easily one of the top cities to feature in 10 of the most colourful places in the U.S.
5) Rainbow Row, Charleston
This one is literally a sight for the sore eyes that have had enough of concrete skylines with almost similar shades. The rainbow row in Charleston has a really interesting history, it stands out because in the 1930s, a couple had brought a row of houses and painted them pastel pink. Their neighbours were so amazed by the idea, that they followed lead resulting into a vibrant row of houses.
6) Bear Lake, Alaska
Very few places are blessed with the magic of Northern lights. Bear Lake, Alaska is one of the few gifted ones. You can witness the magic of Aurora Borealis in spring, winter and fall. Bear Lake is a sight to behold because the reflection of the water becomes even more mystical with the amazing northern lights.
7) Santa Fe
Santa Fe is one of the very few places in U.S which are still untouched by rising levels of pollution. That helps all the natural surroundings spread their magical colours and that is why Santa Fe is a definite must visit on our list of 10 most colourful places in the U.S. The dusks here are nothing less than magical as the sky turns into a shaded canvas of pink, purple, blood orange or yellow!
8) Skagit Valley, Washington
Maybe, the tulip festival here does not stand a chance in front of the Dutch one but is still definitely worth a visit. In the month of April, differently coloured tulips blossom and the sight becomes straight out of a painting.
9) Painted Ladies, San Francisco
The blues, purples, pinks and yellows of these Victorian houses have been captured by uncountable cameras, innumerable times! They stand out all the more because of the beautiful back drop that the sky line of San Francisco provides!
10) New Orleans
One of the brightest cities to feature in our list of 10 most colourful places in the U.S, New Orleans turns even more magical during the festival of Mardi Gras. The colours of the city complement the lights and bright decorations perfectly!
